What is PaperCut?
PaperCut is the back-end software that handles print requests and billing to your Illini Cash account. It is totally invisible when printing from EWS labs and works automatically in the background.

There is nothing special you need to do. As long as you are logged into the EWS computer as yourself, just print to the lab's printer and it will automatically deduct from your Illini Cash balance.
How do I print from my personal device (Web Print)?
Printing from your own device is easy. Log in to the PaperCut Web Portal at: https://papercut.ics.illinois.edu/.
Navigate to WebPrint > Submit A Job > Select A Printer > Select Options and then Upload Documents.
